Since 1997, Open Orthodoxy, through its institutions, Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and Yeshivat Maharat, has ordained over 100 students, most of whom serve in positions throughout America. It is often viewed as—and claims to be—a branch of Orthodoxy. However, the truth is far from this. Citing countless statements from the leaders and disciples of Open Orthodoxy, this book shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that this movement is not Orthodox and, in fact, seeks to undermine Orthodoxy. 

“…Open Orthodoxy is a movement which poses as Orthodoxy, with teachers who pose as halachic authorities and students who pose as Orthodox Rabbis.” 
                                      -From the Foreword by Harav Aharon Feldman

Major Orthodox organizations and leaders across the spectrum reject Open Orthodoxy, do not recognize their ordination, label them "not Orthodox" or criticize their innovations, including:
-Rabbinical Council of America (RCA)
-Orthodox Union (OU)
-Young Israel
-Conference of European Rabbis (CER)
-Agudath Israel
-Traditional Orthodox Rabbis of America (TORA)
-Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg
-Rabbi Shlomo Miller
-Rabbi Hershel Schachter (Rosh Yeshiva Yeshiva Univeristy)
-Rabbi Mordechai Willig (Rosh Yeshiva Yeshiva University)
-Rabbi Dr. David Berger (Dean Yeshiva University)
-Rabbi Dr. Aaron Rakeffet (Professor Yeshiva University)
-Rabbi J. David Bleich (Rosh Yeshiva Yeshiva University)
